  1. You didn't mention what your upgrading for, so I can't say for sure if it's a good upgrade, but in a lot of cases yes it would be.

    Your ram is all running at the same speed, if you have 2 kits that run at different speed, the faster ram downclocks to match the slower ram.
  2. its for gaming
  3. Yes.. it's a good upgrade. One that you desperately need! lol, It's a shame you're running a GTX460 on such an old processor and motherboard :)

    Also... you really should look into 64bit windows 7 with your new CPU/mobo combo and since you have 4gb ram

    After this upgrade... do yourself a favor and get a real monitor :0
    I cant even imagine using a low res. 17" with the sweet ass computer you're going to have
